The DMV placed an Ohio “DUI” conviction on his California driving record. This is not permissible unless the DMV has court records from the other state proving that the conviction arose from actual driving because Ohio, and most other states, permit a “DUI” conviction for conduct that is not a DUI in California. The DMV did not have the required records when it placed the Ohio conviction on the Client’s California driving record and the court ordered DMV to remove the Ohio conviction and set aside the resulting suspension.

Writ GRANTED
